Our velvet drive direct drives a RH prop, (RH engine) but the lever on the box goes into the Forward position to drive in Reverse, and vice versa.
Apparently a 72C pump
can be re-indexed to permit
the detent control lever to be operated with the engine
in reverse to go forward and vice versa. (this is otherwise a no-no).
is anyone familiar with this?
I don't have a plate on my box. the only ID is:
N1 72 1F (what do they mean?)
I am guessing that this is a 72C which predates the 1018, and can thus be re-indexed.
I am also guessing that the ratio is 1:1 (apparently if it was 2.5:1 it wouldn't be re-indexable!).
It doesn't have the roundish reduction housing on the tail end which you see on the high reduction models, but I wonder if it still has a small planetary reduction lurking in the box, which is a reluctant possibility?
So does anyone know how to adjust it, or can i just swap the RH prop for a LH prop?
